Pharmacies & Hospitals – Canada has an excellent health care system and the medical care is excellent. You will be able to buy paracetamol and ibuprofen based products for your child in pharmacies (over the counter). Make sure you bring a first aid kit and take out travel insurance for each member of your family before you go.


Clothing –  Warm clothes are essential for Canada, particularly in winter when the temperatures can drop below freezing. A hat and sunglasses are important when outdoors at any time of year as is a buggy shade or parasol. The sun can be strong in winter and summers so bring sun protection for your child if you will be outdoors at any time of year.  If you’ll be visiting the snowfields in winter, warm, layered clothing is a must.  


Health Precautions – No vaccinations are needed to enter Canada.
